Lifetime's College Admissions Scandal Movie Packs All the Mess and Drama Into Its Trailer

The college admissions scandal involving Full House's Lori Loughlin and Desperate Housewives' Felicity Huffman rocked the nation back in March, and now it's inspired a Lifetime movie. However, the film — which is aptly and conspicuously titled The College Admissions Scandal — won't directly call out Loughlin and Huffman's part in the whirlwind of deception, despite my personal desire for all the dramatized tea.

Still, the first official trailer for the movie looks as juicy and kind of heartbreaking as the actual incident. It teases the storylines of two moms set on getting their kids into prestigious colleges, even if it means bribing school officials, rigging exams, and doctoring pictures of the children playing sports to "earn" scholarships (that really happened, people). If this wasn't based on a true story, I'd think the clip was pretty melodramatic, but alas, this is the world we live in. Watch the trailer above, and have your popcorn ready for The College Admissions Scandal's Oct. 12 premiere!
